This newsletter's first article is the director's report "Double Standards in Australian Family Policy" by Don Edgar. It asks for government support for families in the form of programs and funding, not just rhetoric. The next article, "IFS Research", also by Don Edgar, details the past, current and future research of the Institute of Family Studies. Short articles by researchers in the Institute follow: "Remarriage Data" (Christine Kilmartin); "IFS Study of the Economic Consequences of Marriage Breakdown: Progress Report" (Peter McDonald); "Family (Law?) Centres" (Don Edgar); "Adolescence and the Family" (Gay Ochiltree); "Video Vignettes on Stepfamily Dynamics" (Ilene Wolcott); "Social Statistics: A Comment" (Peter McDonald); "Social Psychology and the Family: A Report on the Annual General Meeting of the Australia Social Psychologists" (Paul Amato); "Dependent Spouse Rebates and Their Incidence" (Kerry Lovering); "Changes for Women in Greece" (Liz Sharman); and "Changes in European Family Law: England and West Germany" (Margaret Harrison). Short Features include book reviews and articles about: (1) changes in Institute staff; (2) titles recently published by IFS; (3) the Australian Family Studies Database (AFAM), which includes bibliographic informaton about publications on families and family life in Australia; (4) the Work and Family Information Centre in New York City; and (5) conferences and workshops held in fall 1984 in Melbourne.
